I first came across this series in one of those choices games where you can make different choices throughout the story. I believe I found this particular story in the app, Chapters.
So this first book, I knew majority of what was going to happen. I also know majority of what will happen in the second book as well, but not how it ends. At least I don’t think I know how it ends, I don’t remember finishing the second story. But I enjoyed reading this story over playing the choices game. I got way more details and I fell in love with this story all over again.
I’ll be honest this book may not have been the best book in the world. But I truly enjoyed reading about this alien love story. In a way, this reminded me vaguely of the Twilight and Fallen series. The whole alien with the high school girl, where he’s a jerk to her to protect her. It all sounds familiar. But it was also very different and unique in its own way.

Instead of a vampire or a fallen angel, it’s an alien who is literally like a glow-worm. I read another person’s review of this series, they labeled Daemon a glow-worm and I thought it was very fitting. When it comes to Daemon, we love to hate him. He's such a jerk and at the same time we can't help but want him.
I read this whole book basically in one day 320 pages. That’s the most I’ve ever read in a single day. I honestly surprised myself. But I simply could just not put this book down. I needed to keep reading, to know what was going to happen. Well I knew what was going to happen, but I wanted to know all the details and reread what was going to happen.
Once I reached the halfway point, I went and bought the other four books in this series. I think I’m going to be rearranging my next few TBR lists to read the rest of this series!
Overall, I truly enjoyed this book. It earned a spot on my favorites shelf. I think anyone who enjoyed Twilight or Fallen will like this book! It’s a great paranormal read. It was very entertaining, it flows so well. I can’t wait to for the rest of the books to get delivered! (I’ve got most of the series now and have already read the second book by the time I post this review) I’m so going to just plow through this series.
